    A Southpaw, "Mini-1800" Keyboard





    Design & Theory

    A dignified, strong, and life-bringing animal. A respect worthy of an entire culture.

    Thousands of stories. Thousands of titles.


    No rationality. No superfluous narrative.  Because adoration has a settlement, and emphatically, a day ought-deserving...

    Just a side note:

    We are considering offering "Blank" Case Badges as add-ons. 

    For those that have a fear of cows, It could be a traumatizing without the offering.


    If you like to voice that as your preference please Fill the IC Form Out and let us know! :D

    Hey there, MrKeebs here!

    Since I am the author of a very similar board that I have been planning on running forever that many of you may know as Elongate, and also given the amount of PMs me and Gongo are getting about it, and even seeing some people already commenting on said resemblance, I thought I should chip in with my thoughts.

    I do think that this board looks a lot like the Elongate, specially when you look at the colors chosen for the prototype. There are clear differences: it's a south paw (duh!) and it doesn't have the split space blocker.

    Just for the record, here's the unboxing of my prototype that took place Oct 27, 2019 -

    To add to that, and to take full accountability for my shortcomings, I have been working on this project for a long time (maybe too long) and have not posted an IC, which is totally my fault. Had I done so, it would be a lot more obvious that it was something that was going on.

    So in a nutshell: do I think that this shouldn't run? No, I do think it's totally fine to run.

    If I was running it, I'd personally approach this differently. If I knew about Elongate existence, I would PM me beforehand just to clear things out. That's the only part that leaves a bit of bad taste in my mouth.

    With all of that said, if there's one thing I hate the most in this community is drama. That's why I wanted to take this out of my chest and say that even though the runners obviously didn't ask for it, you have my full blessing for this project and I wish you nothing but the best!

    i'd say the elongate is quite different from this as well, only the layout being slightly similar (though a bit of a stretch as you mentioned)

    Im So confused lol

    I love Mr. Keebs, his Designs/workings and never thought clarabelle was similar besides being another "Mini 1800". There are SO MANY differences between the two.



    Remember when Gondo (Elongate PCB Designer) made the SharkPCB and People LOST THERE MINDS in regards to the Planck... lol

    Similar...but not a rip off.  I really put a lot of mind to paper work in this.

    Just to be clear, the love is truly mutual and as you can tell by my response up there, I have no hard feelings and hope all the best.

    And that clearly shows. Specially the infographic and etc.

    Why don't we let this be the last exchange about it and move on with peace of mind? :) The only reason I felt compelled about posting was the PMs and the comment on the thread. I swear I won't hijack this anymore!

    I cannot say that I need this – but I absolutely want this.

    (Seeing Jae is interested in this, I think you have found your EU proxy at least. ;) )

    I'd get this, but the split spacebar bottom row is not good enough for me :( I'd like the AltGr key to be easier to hit (here it's further away than on 60% layouts), and I don't think the 1/1.5/1 sequence looks good. I'd prefer a separate plate for split spacebar bottom row, and something like 1.5/1/1.25/2/2.25/1.25/1.25/1/1.5, or 3x 1.25u + 2u/2.25u spacebars + 4x 1.25u
    This would still put the spacebar split right in the middle between G and H, and it would not increase the number of keys, but it would improve the sizes and locations by a lot in my opinion.

    Let me go in and see what this looks like visually. Im all for modifying if it seems beneficial.

    I would love this but I am not left handed.  Really nice design and layout.  If you ever put the numpad on the right let me know.
    I started typing on a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 'human flesh' keyboard in 1980 and I never stopped.

    I definitely prefer the current split spacebar layout over what you've proposed. I hope that if your layout does get implemented that both can exist.

    We can’t offer a Configuration that different mainly for cost reasons.

     The other “Mini-1800” keyboards that I’ve seen are all right hand NumPad so those would be more suited for that preference.
